Painting trim...

I pulled the grilles and fresh air vent trim, got the high gloss dupli-color paint, and have gone through almost a whole (large) can... trim still dries gray! Anyone know what the best paint brand to be used for repainting the trim black is? I'm planning on doing all the black trim around the whole car.

Thanks!

Lol... I'm not sure what good pics would do since I'm just looking for info on the best paint to use on the trim... but I'll see what I can do here in the next couple hours when I swing back by the house.

Meaning there's a post on it or just that someone knows for sure?

**Update**
I found posts on Wurth & SEL brand paints... are these the ones I'll want to look into? I'll do some research on them and see if I can find a local place to pick some up.
